Elderly Woman Throws Coins Into Plane’s Engine For Luck, Causes Hours Of Delay

Published on 28 June, 2017 at 5:00 pm By

Not a single day do human beings fail to amuse us. It is true that science and faith are in a constant tussle to explain our existence and give it meaning. These don’t necessarily walk hand-in-hand. But sometimes, the tiff between science and faith gives birth to some of the most bizarre incidents which might make you gasp.

In yet another clash between faith and science, an 80-year-old woman threw 9 coins at the engine of her plane for good luck. The superstitious passenger missed the hit 8 times but the last one got into the engine. The incident took place at Shanghai Pudong International Airport which caused a delay of 5 hours.

An elderly woman named Qui was traveling with her husband, daughter, and son-in-law. As she was boarding on the tarmac, a passenger spotted her throwing coins at the engine of China Southern Airlines flight. She was detained by the police as soon as the matter came up. 150 passengers were evacuated right then and there for a safety check.

 



China Southern Airlines gave statements on Weibo,

A senior passenger threw coins to the plane’s engine and delayed the flight. The passenger involved has been taken away by police.

In order to make sure the flight is safe, China Southern maintenance has conducted a full exam of the plane’s engine.

Police at the airport informed that the old lady is a devoted Buddhist and she threw coins as an offering to ensure safety. Irony had a field day looking at the commotion at Shanghai Pudong International Airport.
